The Art of Palmistry - Palm readings

Palm Reading

Palm reading is a very old art originating in ancient India, its roots reaching as far back as 12,000 to 15,000 years ago. Also called palmistry, it is basically a technique of interpreting the palm print of a person to the extent of telling practically everything about them: the past, present and future potentials of their life as well as emotional and mental characteristics and various other properties of their personality.

Some believe that a palm print is the blueprint of a person’s life. One explanation of this is that the lines are created by electromagnetic changes sent by the brain throughout our lives, generating an actual physical imprint upon the palm that can be correctly interpreted according to certain rules.

The symbolic significance of the human palm has been recognized even in prehistoric times long before it became the refined art that is known today. The large number of hands painted on the walls of prehistoric caves suggests that the interest in certain forms of early palmistry have been around even in the Stone Age.

The earliest knowledge regarding actual palmistry dates back to the 15th century in the work of Michael Scott. The Greek physician Hippocrates was also knowledgeable regarding the use of hand reading as a clinical aid. Today, the knowledge is spread throughout the world and you can even find free palm reading websites that can teach you all about the basic rules of palmistry.

There are a few simple steps that will help you easily use this reading to generally determine someone’s personality traits and the potential future of their life. First of all, you need to determine which hand to choose. For women, the right hand tells you what you were born with while the right hand shows everything you have accumulated throughout your life. In the case of men, it is the other way around.

The true palmistry challenges begin after you pick a hand. The most important step is to locate the 4 major lines: the heart line, life line, head line and fate line. Not everyone has a fate line so it is often best to focus mostly on the first three.

For an accurate palmistry reading you need to examine all the lines in a detailed way. The length and depth of the lines as well as whether or not they are wavy or straight can tell you a lot about the person’s life. For example, in basic hand reading, a curved heart line tells you that the person is very creative while a straight heart line parallel to the head line points to the fact that the person has a very good hold on their emotions.

There are countless ways in which people interpret hand reading, some offering accurate results while others might just be assumptions. A trial and error process combined with years of study is practically unavoidable if you want to be a successful palm reader.

Nevertheless, when it comes to determining whether palmistry is real or not, one thing is certain: many people have managed throughout the years to successfully use these readings not only to “read” emotional and mental patterns but even to predict future events.
